Jamaica, together with other British colonies in the West Indies, took over responsibility for their own postal services in 1860. They had, since 1858, been using British stamps with numeral obliterators A01 to A78. British stamps were withdrawn in August 1860 Jamaica reverted to handstamps until De La Rue delivered in November 1860.
